Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

O Lord Jesus Christ
Who, before ascending into heaven,
did promise to send the Holy Spirit
to finish Thy work
in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples,
deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me,
that He may perfect in my soul
the work of Thy grace and Thy love.

Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom
that I may despise the perishable things of this world
and aspire only after the things that are eternal,

the Spirit of Understanding
to enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth,

the Spirit of Counsel
that I may ever choose the surest way
of pleasing God and gaining heaven,

the Spirit of Fortitude
that I may bear my cross with Thee
and that I may overcome with courage
all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,

the Spirit of Knowledge
that I may know God and know myself
and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,

the Spirit of Piety
that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable,

and the Spirit of Fear
that I may be filled with a loving reverence
towards God and may dread in any way to displease Him.

Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples,
and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit. Amen.
